President a no-show.
Barack Obama doesn’t care about service people.
Texas is a red state.
Plus, the chain smoker has to twist arms for PelosiCare.
I am not a fan of George W. Bush in any sense, but I do say one thing for him: He would have been there today.
Barack Obama cares about....Barack Obama.
Regardless of who’s sitting in the Oval Office, I find the notion that a President should jet-off to the scene of a tragedy acting as Healer-in-Chief rather silly.
We don't need him cluttering up our state.
The commander in chief of our armed forces is AWOL, quick, call the MPs
He’s too busy recognizing an Indian who didn’t win the Medal of Honor.
The tragedy was HIS tragedy. This was a MILITARY base with MILITARY personel. It wasn’t just some random McDonalds. He is the highest ranking officer in that organization, yes, in this case, he should jet off to the scene.
I can't help but imagine how the parents and spouses and children and other loved ones of those killed and injured yesterday are feeling, seeing the lack of compassion from the president while experiencing such horrible loss.
My heart is breaking for them and I'm furious with Obama.
You are absolutely correct. If anything the President showing up to a scene of this sort only makes the situation worse. BUT! If a Republican president didn’t show up, the press and left would have a field day.
Thank God he didn’t. If such a thing were possible, it would only have caused a mess.
Bush didn’t fly to NYC or rush the Pentagon on 9/11, either.
Ft. Hood didn’t lift their lockdown until after nine p.m. They wouldn’t have let ANYONE in. And Secret Service wouldn’t have cleared him to travel to such an area, anyway. It is completely against their operating proceedures.
Calm down. ;)
His mention of Fort Hood following shout-outs and accolades spoke enough.
Two tabloids are claiming he is having a meltdown..or at least has on one occasion. Not eating, etc.
My post is just about spreading the truth about the ringer.
If he did go, he'd probably have directed most of his remarks to socialized medicine.
The American tabloids are mostly owned by Clintonistas.
